    Default Engine Ticking (video included)

    Hi,

    Got a Vectra 1.8SXI 2004. I fired up the vectra today for the first time in 3 days, where its been parked on a slope. The bonnet was open and i could hear a ticking sound. After the engine had been warmed up the ticking wasn't as bad but here is a vid of the car warmed up (please note the video makes it look worse than it is! it sounds like a diesel here lol but in real life engine sound is quiet, and you should be able to hear the clicking sound):

    Now tbh from the cabin its soo faint you really need silence, windows open and have to be looking for it so i dont know how long its been doing this or if its maybe normal and im worrying for no reason?

    Please help!

    I hope so too! Its pretty faint clicking there compared to what it was when cold tho, where even my sis could hear it (she cant hear the diff between a smart car or a gt40).

    Also just did the DIY on my headlights and one seems to be steaming up doh. And I've got some brake squeel argh! Really hope this is normal and could someone else confirm? Need to sort the old veccy out!

    Ahh phew! Well hopefully the oil has now recirculated but it cant hurt doing an oil change as the ticking is still slightly there.

    Many Thanks all!
